We want to build on the unique spirit of this area, forming a new neighbourhood that captures the spirit of Mill Road with a people-focused design. We want to complement this area and its independent, cultural feel.
We want to enhance this with a new addition to the neighbourhood where people will come to live, work and enjoy time together. A community-centred approach to development is crucial to building a place that seeks to integrate with the existing fabric of the community. We believe that our plans for Devonshire Gardens will be a valuable addition to the Mill Road area, bringing together existing residents with new ones as well as offering space for both established and emerging businesses.

Prioritising wellbeing and quality of life is a key aspiration for the site. Our scheme includes the delivery of a new public park to offer an alternative space where the local community can enjoy events and other activities.

The potential to deliver genuine long-term social value, through employment and training opportunities and improvements to the environment as well as boosting health and wellbeing. In partnership with the local community, a Social Value Action plan will be drafted, targeting improved local outcomes which will be tangible, publicly-measured and quantified.

The introduction of space for local independent businesses, leisure and community uses set around the new public park will form an active public realm, contributing to the area and establishing it as a key addition to the existing community.

First Base and its team are committed to working with site neighbours and those living and working in the wider area as we continue to progress our plans for Devonshire Gardens.
